MB&F HMX Purple Black Badger Edition
For the Performance Art collection, James Thompson – aka Black Badger – reinterpreted the HMX, first launched in 2015 for MB&F’s 10th Anniversary.
Black Badger's speciality is working with high-efficiency lume – an exclusive material that comes in solid blocks that he mills by hand or machine into the desired shape. The lume is extremely efficient at storing and releasing light, and its solid form means that it shines brighter for longer.
Limited to only 18 pieces, and comes with full set, papers and the MB&F display box.
